Scanned the article. Pretty much what we have discussed/confessed before, but good, to be reminded of what "GAS" is. Pure lust for the latest, best, and self indulgence. But he is right. That doing photography, does help push back the need for more, better stuff. The more I shoot, the less gear, I am inclined to need/want. I'm tired of the gear owning me, instead of the other way around. My answer to myself: loose some stuff, and focus on "using", not "getting".
